Hi guys, I'm selling my computer, the specifications are as follows:
Antec Sonata case
Asus Asus a7n8x-e Deluxe
AMD Barton 2500+
2x 512MB Crucial DDR400 Memory (1GB total)
40GB ATA hard drive
160GB ATA hard drive
+ Runs very well, probably punches slightly above it's weight and I've been very impressed with the performance in a lot of games. Managed to complete Oblivion in 1680x1050 with medium-ish graphics and a smooth frame rate, will run HL2 and the other mods in high detail at the same resolution.
+ In the three years I've had it, I don't think it's crashed a single time through anything that wasn't either my fault or the fault of the dodgy Antec PSU that came with it.
+ One of the best socket A motherboards around, nice feature set and great overclocking abilities...
+ Ability to overclock the CPU to 3200+ if you wish, apparently very easy to do so and the 2500+ is the perfect chip to do this.
+ The graphics card is only around two months old
- There's a scratch just over 1inch long on the side of the case from where my dad managed to put it down on something sharp when we were decorating my room, it's on the right hand side though so if your setup is anything like mine it's not noticable at all.
- The processor is likely a little worn from where I was originally struggling to fit the heatsink, again though it runs perfectly, never crashes so shouldn't be an issue unless you're planning on keep taking the heatsink on and off, which I guess you won't :p
~ It's currently pretty loud, but this is almost entirely due to the case fan running at 100% since switching PSUs (my new PSU doesn't have a 'fan only' connector with a low voltage like I had before) but this is easily fixed by replacing the case fan. Other things like the graphics card fan are easily changed with a program such as ATI Tool if you want to bring the noise down even further.
That's it I think.
I've no idea what it's worth, I went onto Ebay and found out the prices of each part individually and it worked out at just over £225 for the lot, although I'm not expecting anywhere near that, so make me an offer :)
Considering everything, price I'd like is £175 including delivery o.n.o.
